Newbie from Derby/ Burton

Hi Everybody,

Newbie from between Derby and Burton.

Been a couple of weeks since I received my mini 2. Have completed a few flights and found a handful of local flying spots near me. Really enjoying the new hobby!

If anyone wants to meet up for a fly and/or a chin wag then get in touch!

Hi @jordans and welcome to Grey Arrows :wave:t2:

Have you seen our members map? (Click the burger-menu in the top right) You may find some pilots living near you. Feel free to add yourself to the members map too :+1:t2:

We’re a well established club with many knowledgeable members so it’s very likely that any issues you come across will have been discussed here before. Our discussion forum has very powerful search features which should help you find what you need but if you get stuck you can post a new question in the #questions-and-answers category.

Looking for recommendations of places to fly? Check out our interactive map on Drone Scene - be sure to log in to gain access to the full suite of features and map layers:

And please feel free to add locations of your own too.

Please also take a moment to look at the Membership Levels section on our FAQ as we’re quite different to other clubs and you’ll be eligible for some rather exclusive club discounts as your membership level increases :blush:

Welcome once again!

So far I’ve been to: Swarkestone, Brailsford, Barrow and Tutbury without any issues. I just use Komoot to find a public footpath and take off from there!
